The final issue of “Countdown to Final Crisis” finally comes out and it’s so bland and non-final it just wastes all of the momentum established in the preceding 51 issues.
I’m not sure I’ll even pick up the trades of this one; I’m that disappointed. I enjoy these big events, I’m a big fan of the far-reaching ones (even when they involve retcons) but “One More Day / Brand New Day” and “Final Crisis” seem to be the biggest non-events in Comics history. Not quite “Clone Saga” bad, but fairly close.

Having “The Source” step up and kill the “New Gods” and the world-wide Virus Death A Go Go (leading to OMAC and KAMANDI no less) be part of this “event” was really the last straw. I enjoyed the Buddy Blank section, I liked the Countdown to Mystery and Adventure series, but to end it all with a whimper like this. I’m less than satisfied.
Oh, and by the way Darkseid has been killed before, grow up!
